When I first arrived in Spain, I had several men say to me “Guapa“. At the time, I had no idea what it meant as it’s an adjective only used in Spanish in Spain, so I had to look it up on the internet. Guapa, or Guapo, if it’s said to a man, means ‘Beautiful’ or ‘Handsome’ in English. But most Spaniards will tell you, it’s often used not just to mean beautiful or handsome but also to mean a kind of sexy beauty or handsomeness.
Guapa or Guapo are also often used as something to call someone — for instance:
“Hola guapa. ¿Cómo estás?”
And how do you pronounce Guapa or Guapo?
Guapa/Guapo are pronounced something like this —hwah-pah
Remember, like most Spanish adjectives, Guapa is easy to use, just change the ending to an -o- ending if you use it with a guy.
